2 Find­ing a colour scheme

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

These colours are in­flu­enced by the im­pres­sion­is­tic painters of the Ash­can School, who por­trayed the lives of the lower work­ing class in New York in the be­gin­ning of the 20th cen­tury. I like the grainy, re­al­is­tic feel of some of their paint­ings. My colour scheme has its roots in the sky: its dom­i­nant colour cre­ates a uni­fy­ing scheme in this en­vi­ron­ment. The colour of large ob­jects, such as the buildings, change ac­cord­ing to the en­vi­ron­ment. I choose some lo­cal colours to cre­ate a uni­fy­ing look and add visual in­ter­est. I want har­mony, but want to avoid a monochro­matic im­age.
